"Wow, your shipping fee is so high!" Is it?
We ship to valid US addresses via the USPS with the exception of Hawaii (please see below.)
New for 2023! I now use USPS' Ground Advantage which in addition to providing tracking, includes insurance up to $100. An additional 2% fee selected at Checkout will adjust the insurance to cover the full seed value of your order if it is over $100.
Complete, correct information is required to process your order. (I do not share, sell, or use your personal information for anything other than order fulfillment.)
Pricing is informed by the USPS' calculation shipping from 48462. An additional percentage is added to cover processing fees and handling.
Maximum weight for standard shipping is 4 pounds. An order over 5 pounds requires special consideration.
When your order is shipped it is assigned a tracking number. Please monitor the progress of your delivery via USPS Tracking.
Once your order enters the postal system it is beyond my control.
Contact your post office directly if there is an issue with delivery.
Great Lakes Staple Seeds is not liable for damage to or loss of packages delivered then stolen.
The domestic "Shipping" fee includes the costs associated with electronic payment (roughly 4-5%) and packaging, in addition to the actual postal cost. I realize that the stated rates may seem high but unlike companies that hide their "free shipping" costs in higher seed packet prices, I believe a one-time fee that includes processing is reasonable and more fair to my customers. Any profit made in shipping is negligible to non-existent, and in many cases I lose money.
Shipping to Hawaii: Unfortunately I am not able to ship to Hawaii. Please see Hawaii: Summaries of Exterior Quarantines.
